atomic habits by james clear

favourited by nitesh

nasa space shuttle owners' workshop manual

favourited by patrick

Patrick said: "Because it's an owners' manual." We're not quite sure if Patrick has actually read the book or just geeked out over the awesome illustrations throughout. Either way, one of his favourites!

digital minimalism by cal newport

also favourited by nitesh

Nitesh said: "It's really helpful for someone who feels they are spending lots of time on social media. It explains the tricks used by different social media platforms to keep a user engaged. It also tells of side effects of excess online presence/technology addiction, and provides strategies for 'digital de-clutter'."

favourited by kareem

Kareem said: "Great book about digital in general, but more from a macro perspective."
